Concert at 8PM
When composer Pauline Oliveros died in November, at age 84, she left behind a remarkable body of work that begin with her pioneering tape music pieces from the 50s and included electronic works, Buddhist-inspired sonic meditations, and works where the audience was part of the performing ensemble. The group ICE, International Contemporary Ensemble, is spearheading a commemoration of Oliveros’s work at the vast Park Avenue Armory, in a free series of events that will include some of Pauline Oliveros’s closest collaborators. Her music and her approach to communal music-making are the focus of a series of free events tonight at the Park Avenue Armory.
